Anne L. Nixon Scholarship

The Annie L. Nixon Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1984 as the result of a bequest from the named late Deaconess.
The Fund provides scholarships for members of Macedonia Baptist Church who are high school graduates, undergraduates or graduate students. Eligibility is based on academic excellence and Christian service. Applicants must provide proof of enrollment in a post high school technical school or an accredited college.

Applications are made available annually in March and must be completed and returned in May in order to  qualify for consideration by the Scholarsip Fund Committee. Award recipients are announced in June with the source of funds and the amount of the awards being determined by the interest derived from the principal of the original bequest. It is important to note that the recipients incur no financial indebtedness.
